Woman alive after six hours of cardiac arrest

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

A team of doctors in Spain saved the life of a British woman who spent six hours in cardiac arrest after falling unconscious during a hike.

The Vall d’Hebron hospital said it's the longest time a patient has been in cardiac arrest and survived in Spain.

Audrey Schoeman, 32, and her husband Rohan, who both live in Barcelona, were on a hike in the Spanish Pyrenees in early November when they were caught in a snowstorm.

Around lunchtime, Mr Schoeman noticed his wife began speaking oddly and became incoherent.

She soon fell unconscious, and Rohan called for helicopter rescue. It was delayed by bad weather, and as temperatures dropped Ms Schoeman developed hypothermia.
